Banter Reviews: Mats Zuccarello Bobblehead By Mike Murphy
We all love Mats Zuccarello. He’s led the New York Rangers in scoring for the past three years, he’s the ultimate underdog, he has come back from a terrifying injury that nearly ended his career, and he’s the greatest Norwegian to ever play in the NHL.
Did you know that he is just 10 points away from having three times as many points as Espen Knutsen, the man who is second all-time among Norwegian skaters in NHL scoring? Well, now you do. We like to keep our readers at Blueshirt Banter informed.
Which is why we’re reviewing the first-ever bobblehead of the heart and soul of the Rangers.
The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum was kind enough to send Blueshirt Banter a very unique bobblehead. Only 2,018 of these Zuccarello bobbleheads have been made, and they sell for $40 plus shipping. This bobble-noggin was made exclusively for the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum by FOCO, and is one of just two NHL-related bobbleheads they are making in this style. The other one is Maple Leafs’ mascot Carlton the Bear, who I’m hoping will charge and maul Gritty in a fluff-filled recreation of that scene from The Revenant. I bet Gritty’s internal organs are made out of Cheetos, pork rinds, and soggy cheesesteak bread.
